Alice in Wonderland
Alice's attention is caught by a white rabbit pulling a watch out of his waistcoat. So she follows this rabbit down the rabbit hole and falls into a new world of adventure. There are cats who disappear all but their grin. There are sneezing babies that turn into pigs. There are mock turtles who sob and gryphons who cackle.
Alice grows and shrinks. She gets caught in houses and below tables because of her size. She finally learns how to control her size with judicially eating her mushrooms. As each new event happens, she describes her experiences as "curiousier and curiousier."
Alice and her adventures are probably known the world around. Her story has been made into movies, television specials and stage plays. This imaginative tale is timeless. So is the book. The book describes the action and characters, yet still leaves so much room for the imagination to roam. If you've never read this children's book, do so. If you read it a long time ago, renew the friendships. You can't go wrong with this one. It's not just for children.
